Aims: Family members are the main components of the care system for injured spinal cord patients. Taking care of such patients is a tense responsibility. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between humor and subjective well-being with regard to the mediating role of resilience in caregivers of patients with spinal cord injury.
Instruments & Methods: In this descriptive-correlational study, 219 caregivers of spinal cord injured patients referred to Borna Scientific-Sport Institute in Isfahan in 2016 were selected using available sampling. Data were collected using Subjective Well-Being Scale (SWBS), Resilience Scale and Sense of Humor Questionnaire (SHQ). Data analysis was performed by Amos 18 software, using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) and Bootstrap test.
Finding: Correlation between humor and resilience with subjective well-being was significant (p<0.001). The proposed model was good-fitting model (p<0.05). There was also a significant indirect relationship between humor and subjective well-being through resilience (β=0.22; p<0.006).
Conclusion: Psychological resilience in relationship between humor and subjective well-being as mediator plays an important role in improving the psychological state of caregivers of patients with spinal cord injury.
